Radiohead didn’t receive the warmest of welcomes in Kansas City, Missouri over the weekend.
The Westboro Baptist Church, who hates everything from soldiers to Steve Jobs, picketed outside the band’s show.
Radiohead At Ease is reporting the hate group picketed outside the concert with hurtful signs, attacking the British group with homophobic slurs and saying God was “their enemy.”
Radiohead played the show no problem, and producer, Nigel Godrich, joked on Twitter that it was the “highlight of the tour so far.”
The Westboro Baptist Church also had some biting words towards the group on their website:
“Meanwhile, God is undoing this nation and effecting [sic] all of your lives, with the moth that quietly eats the very fabric of your national garment. Radiohead is just such an event. Freak monkey’s [sic] with mediocre tunes keeps you busy and focused by lightness. It changes nothing, God is undoing and digging up and throwing down this nation.”
These Westboro people sure know how to spoil a good time.
